DH assures me that all birds have to molt sometime...well, these ones are ALL having *one of those days!* The card was done, I was ready to take the pix and something possessed me to use not one, but TWO things I had not yet used...you know, you get it too...stamper's guilt...stuff you HAD to buy or stuff someone gifted you that you have yet to use...well, play with it before you apply it to an otherwise perfectly fine card, really, save yourself the humiliation and frustration!
I tried to brush off the glitter, scrape off, anything...nope, so the birds are molting. That is my story and I am sticking to it!
Image is embossed and colored with Aquapainter and reinkers. Image and CBd mat behind are both up on dimensionals. Learn from my mistake and do not use your *final* copy as a guinea pig. Trust me!

Mel, I love how you don't take stamping too seriously!! I love your moulting birds...I think your dh is correct - they do have to moult at sometime - and I guess you just caught the birds at special time in their life phase!!
Very beautiful - sincerely - and great catch on the moulting phase!!! :)
